Padang

3.5

Porch of Medina

The largest city on the western coast of Sumatra, Padang enjoys a reputation as one of Indonesia's cleanest and greenest cities despite its hub of residential and commercial activity. There's more than just human business here, though: the city is also located centrally on a tectonic plate and annually experiences earth tremors. A Padang holiday offers excellent transport to surrounding attractions, including nearby islands perfect for diving and highlands for trekking. Add the region's famed authentic street food stalls to your Padang itinerary--they're rumored to be among the best in Indonesia. Padang is in West Sumatra. Plan the details of your Padang holiday and any onward adventuring with our easy-to-use Indonesia trip planner.

Where to stay in Padang

Following the massive earthquake of 2009, accommodation options in Padang have slightly decreased due to the demolishment of some of the city's older hotels. Since then, a spate of more modern hotels and lodgings have cropped up, offering onsite restaurants serving authentic local and international food, Wi-Fi, and air conditioning. Otherwise, family-owned and run guesthouses with clean, basic rooms (and sometimes ensuite bathrooms) remain the best options for budget-conscious backpackers.
